For ages we have been meaning to hire cycles at Middleton Top - well our other mate Mel has broken up from school and we wanted to do it before I have my eye operation. So we did it last Wednesday................MEGA FUN! Brilliant laugh - but totally exhausting.
Middleton Top is right up by Carsington Water not far from Ashbourne, and its really very pretty.
A nice long trail for walking, riding and cycling - the cycle hire has all sorts of bikes and it works out at £15 each for the day.
So....off we toddles............
We hired the ladies bikes with padded seats - oh my life those seats were inprinted in our backsides,
talk about massive wedgies by the end of the day!! Them seats was steaming!
Before we started we had the all important office call to make....................
Now for some reason or another, Mel decided to dress as though she was auditioning for the Cadburys Flake advert -....................
this one shows Big D and Chairman Di - Bid D looking very fetching in the blue, but we were doubled up because the shorts were the same colour as her legs. Now, anyone who has ridden a bike in shorts knows that they ride up dont they, you get a real good disappearing act with the shorts - but you see ......................them shorts was the same colour as her legs.................and peaking out..............was.......................the tip of the brown saddle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well we were all hysterical because it looked as though she had a dog up there, looked like a dogs nose peaking out - or a Thai ladyboy!
A view - which to be fair meant nothing cos we were too busy trying to keep upright, if we didnt look down at the path we wobbled terrible.

Where are we? (Dunno)
How many miles we done? (two)
Whats this map of ? (Isle of Man)
Mel and Big D - Mel has gone a bit heavy on the lip filler there
Another view - our question "whats that" "Dunno - is there a bench?"
The bench - just too exhuasted to follow Big Ds conversation ..... notice Chairman Di is
trying to take the weight off her backside by lifting up her shoe! Oh the pain was dreadful.
the other thing was mine and Chairman Dis gears went about 30mins in, and we rode the whole way in
FIRST GEAR! Yep - 36 miles in FIRST GEAR!
Mel proving the size of her wedgie!
Saw my friend today and she said her husband told her that when she hangs her knickers on the line they look like curtains!!! Love it!!!
Here we are at the end - we are worn out totally.... I have to say my bosom looks pretty damn good.
Now I HAD to put this one in because I LOVE LOVE LOVE the random bloke at the back -
you can see that we are like "Bloody hell Diane take the picture" .......I think Diane must have told him to sod off because the one above is the second one...... he is saying "can I have me bikes back!"
See the rucksack on the floor - just been thrown - in that I am knackered way that you throw the
We had a great time really - fabulous.
